The Séamus Ennis Arts Centre (formerly The Séamus Ennis Cultural Centre) was officially opened on October 23rd 2001.
The idea for an arts and cultural centre in memory of Séamus Ennis had its origins in Scoil Shéamuis Ennis, a festival which took place every October in the village of Naul and surrounding districts.
SEAC promotes and develops the Arts and is home to a Live Music Venue, Theatre, multi-disciplinary Arts Centre, The Easter Snow Art Gallery, SEAC School of Music and Café.
SEAC provides a place for the community to experience a diverse range of cultural events and activities, hosting a wide range of events year round, including; concerts by national & internationally acclaimed artists; music; cinema; cultural events; comedy; drama; workshops; food fairs; art exhibitions; a thriving music school and seasonal festivities.
We are a 'non-profit' organisation set up to;
- commemorate the work and life of the late Séamus Ennis
- provide a range of support measures for the preservation and development of local and national culture particularly music
- organise and facilitate events, including educational classes, workshops, festivals or any other activity which promotes the Irish language the traditional culture of Ireland, or any other country
- to provide an outreach service to schools and other institutions
- to create specific training, education, employment and work experience opportunities where appropriate for those involved or interested in cultural activities for community development.
We aim to provide our patrons and friends with an environment that showcases performances from local, regional, national and international artists across a range of genres.
The Séamus Ennis Arts Centre is owned and funded by Fingal County Council with additional funding from The Arts Council and the kind support of our Friends and patrons.
